The study of business informatics combines the advantages of the classic courses of study in business administration and computer science. As a business informatics specialist, you work at the interface between business administration and information/communication technology. For your job, you need both technical knowledge and business know-how. You plan and develop the business information and communication systems that improve the flow of a company's business processes or make them possible in the first place. From an IT point of view, you can perform administrative tasks such as payroll accounting, production control or customer relationship management (CRM). After completing your studies, you will be able to analyse practical tasks and prepare them in such a way that they can be processes by an information or communication system.

Career Prospects

Business IT specialists plan and develop operational information and communication systems that improve or enable the flow of business processes in organisations. For example, administrative tasks (e.g. payroll accounting), production control or customer care (CRM) are mapped in IT terms. Business IT specialists work at the interface between business administration and information/communication technology and must bring both technical knowledge and business know-how to their profession.

The development of software solutions begins for the business IT specialist with consulting and planning discussions with the client and a detailed analysis of the initial operational and organisational situation. On the basis of the information obtained in this way, the requirements for the IT system are compiled in a requirement specification and a target concept is drawn up. Depending on any existing information technologies, adjustments are made or a completely new system is introduced.

Business IT specialists are employed in companies in almost all sectors, authorities and institutions that use information technologies to handle their business processes. But they are also in great demand in companies that develop IT-supported information systems.

Related professions are computer scientist, business economist, business administration graduate, industrial engineer and business mathematician.

Occupational fields

    Analysis and conception of business processes as well as operational information and communication systems
    Development, adaptation and introduction of operational information and communication systems

The subjects German and Mathematics are particularly important in this area. The preliminary capacity of the Business Information Systems course is 68 students per year.

Because of the unique profile of the study course at South Bavarian universities, this offer of the Deggendorf University of Technology attracts lively interest beyond the region. The graduates will carry the academic title Bachelor Science (short form B.Sc.). The bachelor's degree proves a performance of 210 ECTS credit points. After the Bachelor study experienced computer scientists can study the economical informatics master course of studies at the university Deggendorf or another university.
